This is the 2014 annual review of DFID's £17M Ghana Adolescent Reproductive Health (ARH) programme (2013 - 2017). It is the second annual review of the programme and covers the period from January to December 2014.
It summarises progress and lessons learnt since the last review in terms of the four outputs:
- increased provision, knowledge and awareness of adolescent sexual and reproductive health (ASRH) services in the focal region;
- adolescent-friendly sexual reproductive health services developed and provider capacity developed;
- better evidence of factors affecting uptake of ASRH and FP; and
- increased availability of FP commodities.
Overall, the programme scored A: meets expectations. However, while outputs 2 and 3 exceeded expectations, output 1 performed substantially below expectations and output 4 performed moderately below expectations. The annual review details the reasons behind these results and provides detailed recommendations for improvement specific to each output and to DFID.
